Hawke's Return

by Mark Willen


It's his word against hers, and the stakes couldn't be higher.

When a teenager accuses a key official of a local charity of blackmailing her for sex—and then abruptly disappears—a mystery turns into a crisis, raising concerns about the girl's safety, the charity's survival, and the career and reputation of a man who says he is innocent.
      Enter Jonas Hawke, retired lawyer and sage of Beacon Junction. Jonas has just agreed to oversee the charitable group, a friend's attempt to help Jonas move past his grief over the death of his wife. It's his job to uncover the facts and ensure that justice will be done.
      Jonas is helped—and hindered—by the arrival of Dylan Walker and his eight-year-old son. Why a single dad has chosen to move to a small town in Vermont to start a new life is a mystery that tugs at Jonas, especially when Dylan develops an amorous interest in Jonas's married daughter.
      Hawke's Return is the tale of a man groping his way back from the loss of his beloved soul mate, even as he struggles with an intractable dilemma.


Praise for Hawke's Point

An inspiring read, Hawke's Point was elegantly and tightly written and told a story not just of tense situations, but the people in them. Highly recommended.
